RSL makes light work of Tenterfield
Cricket: It was another week of one-sided games in Stanthorpe Cricket: RSL demolished Tenterfield at CF White, while Wanderers spanked Souths on Sheahan Oval.
Batting first, Tenterfield was humiliated for just 20.
Josh Wren backed up last week's stellar performance with another show-stopping 5-10 (two-game tally of 11-22).
It only took RSL four overs to chase 20, without loss.
In the other game, at least the umpires had to do some time for their money: Souths sent Wanderers in on a hot afternoon.
Wanderers' batting showed more determination than last week, a modest all out for 152 in the 39th over.
Several Wanderers batsmen made contributions but Tim Harslett was the top scorer with 37 and extras helped with 31.
Harry Williams had best bowling return with 4-32.
In reply Weylin Aldridge and Jamie Carnell got early breakthroughs that made the task of chasing 152 unlikely.
Enter Eddie Filmer, in his first game of cricket at any level, to the bowling attack: He made a name for himself with 5-10.
Wanderers claimed a comfortable 84-run victory.
Valleys were afforded the bye this weekend. Next week will be the last game in a rain-affected first round.
Last year's cellar dwellers Wanderers and Tenterfield go head to head. Wanderers will take confidence into the game while the Valleys and Souths clash will provide insights into where teams sit.
